Have reviewed all the lessons, and the DVD’s I ordered came in today. How to teach high velocity mechanics and the mechanical faults dvd. Also all the extra booklets and stuff are greatly appreciated. My brother in law has them at his house and is going to watch them with TY a few times this week.
Thanks Coach Mills, will work on that for now.
Coach Mills, You want me to stop him lifting his leg at all? Go with more of the slide step?
Thanks talbani2 that is something we will start to work on this evening. He has a real drive to play ball and after school and homework he will take a bucket of balls and go outside by himself and throw at a target. When he goes outside today I will try to work with him on this.
Should I work with him on getting rid of that routine when he is coming to set? I am trying to figure out where I should start making changes first. From what I can tell he needs to have relaxed elbows and stop swinging his glove out away from his body during knee lift. He needs to leave his foot directly under his knee when coming to a balance position. He needs to lead with his hip and not his foot. At landing his foot looks a little closed off and as he is landing he is not using his glove arm elbow to create trunk rotation properly. At landing he is arching his back and leaning backwards for some reason. What should our first step be here? Wesley
